People don't realize the Clippers are running like the Spurs where barely any games our starters play over 30 minutes. CP3 is averaging like 32 minutes a game and Griffin 31... compared to 37+ for both last year. The bench is good enough to take on most teams for stretches. Last night Lebron+Bosh+Miami bench couldn't stop the Clippers full bench squad from pushing a 9 point lead to 20.
